"K.K. Western" is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Doubutsu no Mori. It is derived from Western music, a subgenre of country music that is commonly used in Western films to convey a remote place in the "Wild West." It has a very similar melody to the traditional folk song "The House of the Rising Sun."
The album cover for "K.K. Western" features a wanted poster of K.K. Slider, which is stained by a horseshoe. The "Wanted" text is only legible in New Horizons.
